On Tuesday, October 25, 2011, ROJS-N writer Monica RW wrote an article titled "Why most African-Americans would never flock to Herman Cain's campaign".

We believed, at that point, our extend on writing content about Mr. Cain would be done, since its' doubtful he will succeed in his quest to become President of the United States.

Sadly, a video has surfaced that makes our first Op/Ed on "The Herman Cain Train Video"  incomplete on how low Mr. Cain would go to appeal to the most questionable racial views of his Conservative Wing of the Republican party.

One of the leaders of the 1800's era Republican Party a number of Conservative thinking African-Americans cite in high standard is Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, known today as Frederick Douglass. Douglass, who was born into slavery in February 1818, was the first African-American to receive a major party roll call vote at the 1888 Republican National Convention for President of the United States.

It would be hard to believe that Mr. Douglas, who authored the book Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave who take the subject of being a slave with laughter or amusement. Especially after writing this passage in his book:
"I was broken in body, soul, and spirit. My natural elasticity was crushed, my intellect languished, the disposition to read departed, the cheerful spark that lingered about my eye died; the dark night of slavery closed in upon me; and behold a man transformed into a brute!" Quote from Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas, an American Slave, Chapter 10, pg. 105.
Candidate Cain repeatedly recites to Tea Party audiences around the nation and in "The Herman Cain Train Video" that his Great-Grand Parents were victims of being forced to work for slaveholders against their wills or rights. A majority of Americans today believe actions which taint a stain of our history as a nation are aligned with those who imprisoned African-Americans on lands which few escaped from and, many others died trying to find their way to freedom.

This Op/Ed is not meant to be a lesson on slavery. Instead, this written article seeks to provide insight on how when one forgets their past history, they will allow others or themselves to disrespect it.

In a interview with Conservative Talk Show host Neil Boortz, highlighted on Cenk Uygur's "The Young Turks Show" October 12th, Candidate Cain completely allows of Boortz's to stomp, in words, upon Cain's family history. 

Boortz's in the first part of the video actually has the nerves to ask Cain which plantation his ancestors was held on in Georgia. After affirming that Boortz's family slave holding land wasn't the "prison" to Cain's family, the talk show host and Republican candidate proceed to laugh about the fact.

Warning-This video contains explicit language

Who are the "saveables" in the African-American community Candidate Cain speaks on with Boortz's in the above video? As a proud member of the community, its' highly doubtful that Cain would consider those of Independent-Left based views like myself, "saveable".

Nor do I or many other African-Americans need to be saved or sit on the "Train" with Herman Cain's "Quest for Excellence". Especially if the quest includes cow-tiding to the likes of views of individuals like Boortz's or others, who believe many of victims of color and otherwise during Hurricane Katrina where "worthless paradises".   

Is it written in a "Book for Black Conservatives" in today's Republican party, one must go along with insulting African-Americans documented history in this great nation, to fit in? If this is a written or unwritten rule Herman Cain must take to be accepted by those of Caucasian ethnic inside the of modern day GOP, defiance should rule the day.

Candidate Cain does his best to use the fact that his African-American -i.e. references to Great-Grand parents being slaves- then laughs at his family history with likes of an individual like Neil Boortz. 

In the Herman Cain Train video, he tells African-Americans that if they believe the "Tea Party" is a racist organization, "Eat Your Words" but in Virginia a GOP Tea Party affiliated leader makes this picture of President Barack Obama.

Cain's Yellow Flowers Ranch Hand video has the actor, who just happens to be African-American, engaged in the losing end of a fight with the Caucasian ranch owner /"Actor" that states "I stand with Herman Cain because Herman Cain stands with us".

Back to Cain's "Train" video, the candidate uses "code words" describing he left "the Democratic Plantation a long time ago" and the next clip talks about his ancestors "being slaves".  

A reference by a Asian-American video-photographer in another "Train" clip, references that President Obama can't count. Cain references for the fourth time in the video that "I'm a Presidential candidate that can count" and the young Asian-American follow up notes, "Unlike our current President". Cain says nothing to counteract the statement.

If Cain's actions on disrespecting his race over and over again, is the best he can do to ascend to the office of President of the United States in the Republican Party; please Mr. Cain if you're reading this....turn in your "Black People" card, right away. We don't need a modern today version of a minstrel show to represent our culture.
